Mojo Anniversary

As I mentioned in my previous post, tomorrow is our 12th wedding anniversary. I used the Mojo Monday sketch 163 to give me some inspiration to make a card for DH.



This is the 3rd attempt at an anniversary card and my 2nd remake of this one. It just wasn't working for me. Thank goodness for that little spatula thingy in the Cricut tools. It works great to peel up the layers of card stock. I added some paper piercing to add a little interest.

We are planning on having a date night tonight. We are very excited to find our favorite chef opened a new Mexican fusion restaurant and I think we will be heading up to Milwaukee to check it out. (Thank you to my MIL for taking my DH overnight!)

Thank you for looking! Have a great week end!

P.S. Mojo, my muse, please come back! I miss you!

Supplies:
  • Images: Marriage Sentiments from Raindrop Echo Designs (available at Whimsy Stamps)
  • Papers & CS: October Afternoon Road Map & Fly a Kite DP, PTI kraft cs, Paper Studio black cs
  • Inks: None
  • Tools: Paper piercing tool, Copic markers, Martha Stewart edge punch
  • Embellishments: Misc. ribbons & brads

Love this card for your hubby and happy anniversary! have you ever tried floss to remove the layers? Yes, maam, dental floss...just works wonders and keeps the integrity of the paper layers that you have to 'pull' up!!! Just pretend that the layers of paper are your teeth and floss away...gently and carefully!!!

Fabulous card, Cheryl. Congrats on your anniversary. I had to laugh at your comment about the Cricut spatula thingy...I use that thing all the time to take off cardstock I've messed up or just don't like. Not sure I EVER use it with my Cricut but yeah, thank goodness for that thing! Thanks for entering the Catch the Bug challenge with your card. Great job combining all those other challenges too! I hope you'll join us again next time.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
